It is safe to say I have entered some sort of "nesting" phase in preparation for Jude's arrival. We do not know when he will come home so I am taking it slowly. I love to craft, so why not make things for him and his room? I will soon post pictures of some of the things I've made. Waiting is much easier than I thought it would be. Our caseworker called on Friday to check in and I realized that we've already been on the waiting list for nearly three months. We continue to live life as normal, while preparing hearts-home-and minds, and never forgetting the precious son God has for us in Ethiopia. So blessed to be basking in the perfect peace of God's timing on this.

If you know me you know that I am not usually good at waiting, I really thought anticipation would easily turn to anxiety... but seriously... God has this under control, and there is no reason for me to worry.

Though I did catch myself worrying about being sick while we travel, this came to the forefront of my mind when I was in the Emergency Room on Friday because of endless hours of vomiting. David asked, "What would we do if we were in Ethiopia right now?" I think I will add a little more concentration on health to my prayers.


  1. Sorry to hear you were so sick! We had a bad virus like that right before Thanksgiving. Yuck. Nesting is awesome. I loved getting the kids' rooms ready and planning out all the details. Have fun!

  2. Hope you are feeling better! Yes, I think that will be a great thing to pray for! Being sick in Ethiopia would not be fun!!

  3. excited to see your projects :)

  4. Sick=bad, pray you are feeling better now.
    LOVE nesting....lots of fun, and you can really come up with great ideas when you are distracting yourself from certain thoughts of a baby on the way. :)
